DENTON WELCH (1915–1948) was both a writer and a painter. Long considered a major "minor" British author, his work has intrigued successive generations (William Burroughs acknowledged his influence).

An exemplary biography by James Methuen-Campbell, Denton Welch, Writer and Artist was published in 2004.
